South Sudan government on Tuesday warned of youth mobilizing to turn out in larges number in Juba on May 15 and 16 to launch nationwide protests against the government which they accuse of failing to restore permanent peace and stability in the country.

Information Minister on Tuesday Mr. Michael Makuei Lueth warned that any protests in the city will be resisted by the government.

“Let the youth not copy what is happening in other countries,” said Makuei before poignantly adding: If they are ready to die we will see,”

He said the agitation by the youth was part of a plot by foreign instigators who he did not name to depose President Kiir’s government.

“We have an idea about this and we know who they are,” Makuei added.
